Great cabaret artists sing into your soul, and as this one–a severely Swedish mezzo, light in vocal colouring and texture–barely gets beyond your skin, it doesn't make for a collector's disc. But what she lacks, her pianist–also Swedish, but more intimate and interesting–supplies, with just the qualities demanded by this kind of short, sharp, instant-attraction repertory where you either grab your listeners' attention in the first three bars or not at all.
